I'm going to hear Tom McDermott play Scott Joplin piano rags for his new CD release part at Snug Harbor down the street from my house. Snug Harbor is a dinner and a show place. What will I eat? I dunno. I'm really going for the music.
I love Scott Joplin and ragtime music. McDermott is doing a new twist on some of Joplin's piano rags so I'm really looking forward to it. Mrs. King is out of town tonight so it's a solo trip. I bought two tickets because I didn't realize Mrs. King wouldn't be home so I'll have a table to myself. If you are Frenchmen Street tonight, go to Snug Harbor and tell them you know Whalehead King. I'll be wearing an orange plaid jacket tonight. That's how you'll know it's me.
Skip to 1:30 of this video and you'll get an idea of what I'll be enjoying. It'll be in a jazz club, though, not a university concert hall. I'm looking forward to it. I'm a McDermott fan and I'm looking forward to getting his new CD.
Have a great New Orleans day today, wherever you may happen to be.
